What is the aim or interest of using a "None" text style?

I am a bit confused because AutoCAD users don´t have "None" style.

According to I have read these days, a "None" style is using the attributes of the last active style and overriding attributes.

I have done a test and if we change a text style (in the properties palette)  to a "None" style and then we select another style, we can "load" all settings of the last selected style, I mean , there is no text style override setttings in the properties palette.

Thanks in advance.

  • It is not clear what you are trying to describe. Can you post some screenshots and some step-by-step workflow?

    By properties palette are you talking about Element Properties or Change Attributes?

    there is no text style override setttings in the properties palette.

    I am thinking you are talking about the Change Attributes tool here?

  • None isn’t a style, its the active text settings that were used at the time when the text element(s) were created.

  • I ignore the possibility of text style: None, and just define my text styles, and use the styles as created.

    Just because it's there doesn't mean you have to use it. I've never found a reason to use it, so I don't.

  • None is most likely just a placeholder. It is a default state if no other is defined. It is probably required to place text with some sort of definition to it. At the very least it is the base building block for user defined text styles.

  • As has previously been suggested, the "None" Text Style is not a named style and thus does not exist as a standalone entity in any file. Editing the "none" style means that you are modifying the file's individual active text settings directly, which are then used to place text, and that the placed text will not be associated to any style. 

    Text style 'Style:none'
